Saturday October 1st was a great day for me. It was my first time speaking at a code camp and it was very exciting. It was great to see familiar faces from the local WPF and Silverlight meetup as well as seeing Rich Dudley, ComponentOne’s evangelist.
The session went very well. I had a number of great questions from the attendees. As is the case in many sessions on new topics, a number of people had never seen nor used the product and so here I was targeting a developer audience for a product meant to an information worker or a junior developer. I ended up given a 20 minute product overview and wrote a simple application on the fly before demonstrating the extensibility options. All in the all the session was very good.
At the speaker dinner party, I was asked about the possibility of giving the same or similar talk at two other local community groups in the next few months, so if you missed it and are interested, stay tuned.
